at the time, a congressman named steve stockman, even wrote in an article in "guns & ammo" magazine that waco was a government execution. he said, "waco was supposed to be a way for the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and the clinton administration to prove the need for a ban on so-called assault weapons." this was a member of congress arguing that the deaths at waco were premeditated by the government as a way to persuade the rest of the country to support gun control. he was saying the government made this up, they did this on purpose, they ginned this up for political reasons, it was planned. ruby ridge had been a cause celebre for folks like that already that year. waco was a further cause celebre for the same group of people. and on the anniversary of waco, on the two-year anniversary of waco, on april 19th, 1995, a militia member named timothy mcveigh cited ruby ridge and waco as his inspiration for bombing the federal building in oklahoma city. timothy mcveigh was trying to kill as many federal employees as possible when he bombed that building. he specifically chose the murrah

stockman. he replaced ron paul and is making noise about impeaching the president. it's his second go around in congress. in '94 he was considered far to the right. now he fits in with some of these people. it says a lot how far they have come. >>> finally let me finish with a need for republicans again to choose sides. the wild bunch or the posse? this is "hardball," the place for politics.

. the full crazy came from texas congressman steve stockman who said he will try to defund the white house or file articles of impeachment if that's what it takes to stop the president from passing laws designed only to save american lives. which is not to say that congressman stockman doesn't have supporters. no former reagan attorney ed meese said stockman would have a good case for impeachment of high crimes and misteds against this president. we're only telling you what ed meese thinks about this because smirnoff and irrelevant '80s figures weren't available for comment. what would the president like congress to pass? jay carney was a lot more clear on that. >> there are specific legislative actions that he will continue to call on congress to take including the assault weapons ban including a measure to ban high-capacity magazine clips including an effort to close the very big loopholes in the background check system in our country. >> john: an assault weapons ban that senate majority leader harry reid said likely wouldn't pass the house. you see the president wants you to keep trying
. a newly elected crazy republican congressman, steve stockman issued a press release about impeaching the president if he issues executive orders involving firearms. the best you could say about stockman is that he issued an idiotic press release in order to get national media attention, otherwise, how would anyone know he is a congressman, again? he served one two-year term back in the '90s. the worst you could say about stockman is he issued an idiotic press release because he believes every word of the press release. another texas republican, state legislator steve toth is proposing legislation that would make any federal law banning semiautomatic firearms or limiting the size of gun magazines unenforceable in texas. his proposed firearm protection act would make it a felony to enforce a federal assault weapons ban in texas. so he would be sending out texas rangers to arrest fbi agents or atf agents or anyone who tried to enforce such a federal law. this of course, could never happen. and is patently unconstitutional. and again, the best thing that can be said about steve toth is t
the president usurping the constitution. republican texas congressman steve stockman talks about impeaching the president if he takes steps to upgrade gun safety by executive order. remember sharron angle, the nevada republican senate candidate talking openly about using second amendment remedies against public officials? people used to think she was alone out there, something of an oddity. what's becoming clear is in today's gop, she's more typical than not. ed rendell was governor of pennsylvania, michael steele was chair of the republican party. gentlemen, thank you. president obama will announce his plans for gun safety tomorrow after hearing vice president biden's task force recommendations, but already criticism is mounting on the right. here is republican senator rand paul of kentucky. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over, and someone who wants to bypass the constitution, bypass congress, that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican presidents, but
we're at this breaking point. >> clinton era conspiracy they'rist and texas republican steve stockman first loaded impeachment earlier this week saying "if the president is allowed to suspend constitutional rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively creased to exist." dana milbank writes in the washington post that stockman was once considered too radical for congress, which is why he only served one term in the mid 1990s, but he is not too crazy for this congress. as milbank notes, "what's frightening is that stockman no longer sounds like an outliar." with reactionary statements that seem at times unhinged from reality, congressman stockman fits in just fine. >> our founding fathers were very concerned about having a separation of powers. they didn't want to let the president become a king. >> i'm afraud that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing, and we're going to make sure it doesn't happen. >> maria theresa, it's like, you know, i feel like i -- we played a little bit of sound from rachel maddow last night, my distinguished collea

being attacked by conservative lawmakers in washington. republican congressman steve stockman of texas has introduced a bill to outlaw the orders as unconstitutional. previously, he threatened to file impeachment proceedings against the president because of the executive orders. beyonce singing the national anthem sparked a lot of reaction over lip syncing. the performance was praised bay reeja franklin who said she did a beautiful job. and aretha who sang at the 2009 inauguration in that hat said she even might prerecord in the future. clint east wad's performance at the republican national convention when he talked to an empty chair, that was a big attention getter. now come word that chair he used is on display in the chair of the rnc chair in the office of the rnc chair. john boehner gave a talk to the republican think-tank on tuesday about the inauguration. he said obama wants to annihilate the republican party and boehner joked about having to calm down legendary college football coach lou holtz. >> about 9:30 i get this text, the country is overwith. we're not doing this again.
